Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

I pulled this Masatami image off a Google search and have it next to my Ikkosai monkey troupe and I am not really seeing a Masatami likeness. The hair work, necks, eyes, noses, mouths, hands, expressions are all rendered differently than my group. I see all but the expressions as so similar to the K...

Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

I did not find my monkey troupe in Fuld's. There are 4 monkeys and it's 3 cm all around.

Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

I guess like here are the netsuke and here are the signatures and this is from the Ikkosai from... which ever dates he was carving. This way I can see from whom mine was carved. Laz has very few examples, I ...

Re: Ikkosai monkey group question

My apologies Matt. Patience is a virtue that I unfortunately do not possess. When I deleted the topic all my research went with it. I will reformulate and repost. The question you ask is in fact a burning question in my mind.

Re: can anyone help identify this netsuke

Thank you Piers. Side by side they do look nothing alike after taking in account your information. I appreciate the tutelage.

Re: can anyone help identify this netsuke

Thank you Judy and Piers. I have all 3 volumes of Laz and I count the strokes and still have difficulty with some signatures, some I am spot on with. I find that known netsuke by a carver with a signature does not always look like the signature in Laz, perhaps it is my mistake that if it looks prett...

Re: can anyone help identify this netsuke

I feel like the signature and carving style is like my avatar carved by the Masastugu from the late 19C. This masastugu tends to make the subjects gender neutral. Also carves sweet faces.
